Gossip Girl Takes on The OC!

at . Comments

It's impossible not to compare Gossip Girl with The OC.

Both shows were created by Josh Schwartz and both shows focus on the lives of well-off high school kids. With that in mind, here's a comparison of various Gossip Girl character and characters from The OC...

Marissa vs. Serena: Serena (Blake Lively, right) seems to have it all, but in addition to a party girl reputation, dark family secrets and a disregard for high society, Serena one-ups the sulky Coop with a history of BFF betrayal.

Summer vs. Blair: Like Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson, left), Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) is the queen bee with the designer clothes and riches to her name. But she lacks Summer's loyal following: Blair's hot boyfriend Nate has already cheated on her, while the return of ex-best friend Serena is putting her crown in jeopardy.

Ryan vs. Nate: The crown prince of the Upper East Side, Nate (Chance Crawford) is the guy who could have it all... but doesn't know what he wants. He may be the polar opposite of The O.C.'s poor Ryan Atwood (Benjamin McKenzie), except for one thing: women. Like Ryan, Nate is no stranger to an impossible love triangle as he stands between frenemies Blair and Serena.

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
